A $25 non-refundable fee is required to audition and it will be applied as a credit to your winter guard dues if chosen for membership.

The 2015-2016 Allegiance RA and IA teams are open to young men and women, ages 14-22. Previous color guard experience is helpful, but not required.

Overall, we think you’ll find auditions to be challenging and fun! It gives the staff ability to assess your skills and potential. It’s also a great opportunity for you to meet other members and the staff while getting a feel for a typical rehearsal day at Allegiance. You do not need to prepare anything special for auditions, however, you will want to do some stretching and practice your spins and tosses so you’re warmed up for gthe audition day. Ultimately, if you like to work hard, have fun and LOVE color guard, you are going to do very well at auditions!
